MCEDD moves to April 2021 with September cancellation

After many attempts to reschedule the dates for MCE-Deepwater Development this Fall, the Board of Directors for GulfQuest, the organizers of MCEDD, have regretfully decided to cancel this year’s conference and exhibition.

The board explored multiple options, including a virtual event, but ultimately decided that the best path forward was to focus on a high quality, in-person event in April 2021. It is our pleasure to announce that MCEDD 2021 will be held at the London Novotel West on April 20-22, 2021.

MCEDD 2021 will launch the Call for Abstracts in the coming months and content originally scheduled for this year will automatically be considered for the 2021 agenda. Please note that our distinguished Directed Content presenters will be invited to participate in our 2021 event.

Delegates with an existing registration can transfer their reservation to the 2021 event. Please contact us if you have any questions about the new dates.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you there!

Kind regards,

GulfQuest Board of Directors

MCE-DD to be Rescheduled with New Dates to be Announced

The MCE-DD and GulfQuest board of directors met Tuesday and have decided to reschedule MCE-DD 2020. Many of you have reached out and we wanted to make sure and share this information in a real-time manner. We are in the final stages of securing the new dates later this year and should have those available in the next few days. To confirm, the venue and location will remain the same at the Novotel London West. In addition, we are planning to host MCE-DD as originally outlined, with both a conference and exhibition taking place.

This was an incredibly difficult decision, but the health and safety of our delegates, exhibitors/sponsors and speakers are our number one priority.

We thank you for being a loyal member of the MCE-DD community. Most of you have been associated with this event since its inception and know this was not an easy decision to make. We are confident that a date later in the year will be more beneficial for the integrity of the conference and a safer environment for all those associated with the event.

For more questions, please feel free to reach out to Andy McDowell at [email protected] or John Chadderdon at [email protected]

Kind regards,

GulfQuest Board of Directors

Preliminary Technical Program Announced

Once again, the decisions on technical abstracts were difficult. Due to the high number of quality submissions for the 2020 Program, less than 40% of those submitted were voted into the Program by the Advisory Board. Once again, Subsea Technologies garnered the most number of abstracts, and thus the largest number of session tracks (four). These coupled with high-impact sessions on Marine Construction, Floating Production, and two session tracks dedicated to Pipelines, Flowlines and Risers, offer one of the most in-depth Programs in many years. For the 4th year in a row MCEDD is proud to include a riveting set of presentations in our Alternative Energy Session.

MCEDD 2020 will open with the Operator Forum on Tuesday, 21 April 2020, with Wednesday morning dedicated to the Plenary Operator-Contract Panel Session, and Thursday morning’s Plenary Session, the Financial Outlook Panel. Deepwater is back and MCEDD 2020 will showcase this.
